Our tour guide Mr Jorge was an absolute delight to have on our vacation. From the moment we met him, he exuded warmth and kindness, which immediately put us at ease. Mr Jorge was also extremely punctual, always making sure we were on schedule and ready to go for each activity. But what really impressed us was the level of care and attention he gave to each member of our family. It was clear that he wanted everyone to have the best possible experience, and he went out of his way to ensure that each of us was comfortable and well taken care of. He even accommodated special requests and made sure to customize the tour to our individual interests and needs. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. He truly made our vacation one to remember and we can't thank him enough for his outstanding service.

Joao nuestro guía nos hizo pasar un gran día. Su conocimiento y su dominio no solo del inglés sino también del Español nos ayudaron mucho a mi y a mi familia a disfrutar de este tour.
